    Funny you should mention the book reading as now that I have the collectors edition guide I'm committing myself to actually read every book available in the game.

    IIRC, someone went through all the files and ripped the books into epub (or some other format) so you can read them on an ereader.

    That is Immense. Now I can pretend my Imperial is carrying an iPad around Skyrim with him. Anyone want to mod that?

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I was hoarding every book I could get with the intention of reading all of them at some point in the game, but I only have so much free time and had only read about ten or twenty so far. Now I can read all of them while commuting to and from work!

    Also, great game. I don't know if it's overrated or not, but it is very entertaining and they've put attention to every little detail. The only minor gripe I have are the close-up textures of the landscape and the environment in general, they are not as detailed as I would like, but I guess if they were high-resolution it would be quite a resource drain. Does anyone know if there are mods out there that improve the textures without slowing down the game much?

    EDIT: Nevermind my last question, I just discovered Skyrim Nexus, it's got all the info I need.

    Are there any women in Skyrim who don't arn't PMSing all over the place? I just walked up to a random female who told me that they'd stab me if I didn't go away. That would be fine, but they're all like that.

    just beat the main quest a few days ago. Set it aside so I could pick up Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

    so far I don't think its as impressive as sky rim. it just seems like Fable with the intensity punched up a few notches...


    Anyway. I might go back to skyrim if they release some DLC soon.

    ^^Fuck, man, how many smithing potions did you have to use to get it that powerful? My mace does like 96 damage, and I thought that was a lot until now.

    When I played through it after it came out I just got the Daedric Sword and Armor as fast as possible, pretty much untouchable thereafter.

    When improving: 1 smithing potion for 20% boost, 4 pieces of armor each enchanted for 20% boost. when equipped I'm wearing 4 pieces of armor each enchanted for 44% increase in one-hand attacks. all enchantments done while using an Enchanters Philter for 20% boost. Also maxed out all of my smithing & enchanting perks early on, but now leveling has grown to a crawl and a lot of my other stats are suffering because of it

    I don't own this game nor fancy to again (ditched it after a week or so) but I was wondering when DLC would be out for it.

    I did the main quest after the Civil War, but I haven't joined the Blades yet. There's still so much stuff I haven't done. I think I'm gonna start a new character when the DLC comes out though and try a mage play-through. I've haven't got much into the magic in Skyrim yet, mostly just run around and burninate the peoples heads off with my Trogdor.

    Kind of a dick move on Bethesda's part with that timed exclusive craziness. The majority of their fanbase came from the PC. Curse you Microsoft!

    Same shit happened with both Fallout 3 and New Vegas.

    I'm playing the Shivering Isles DLC for Oblivion as stated previously and it's so much freaking fun. I love it. Color me surprised!

    Actually, with Fallout 3 and New Vegas I'm pretty sure it was just the PS3 version that was delayed. The DLC came out on PC and 360 at the same time.

    Also, the new issue of Game Informer showed up in the mail today, with a cover story on Elder Scrolls Online

    Well, what I initially meant was that Xbox got the DLC first. Dead Money came out a long ass time until it was available on the Playstation Network. PS3 usually gets left out and gets everything last out of this generation.

    Article that compares The Elder Scrolls: Online to other MMO's such as WoW and SWTOR.

    A few interesting things I noticed are keeping the skills to 6 (for now) which is good in my opinion. The brief period that I was addicted to WoW (like a crack fiend to be honest lol) I only had 2 characters but found myself only using the same handful of skills/powers over and over anyways. Same for Skyrim. Either way I might wait to see the reviews when TES:O drops but I'm pumped for it.
